Additional information / What would you like people to know about you?

My dad got me involved with Cockermouth Swimming Club when I was nine. Favourite and first Olympic memory is watching Michael PHELPS (USA) win eight golds at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Preferred discipline is 100m and 200m backstroke. I do nine training sessions in the pool per week which adds up to 17 hours plus about three hours in the gym/core work. Most influential people are friends, family and coaches who support me. Most proud of winning gold in the 200m backstroke at the 2014 European Junior Championships in Dordrecht, Holland. My hero is Michael PHELPS (USA) because he is the most decorated Olympian of all time. Competing at the 2015 European Games gives me a chance to race against new people and it means I can be on a team with people I usually compete against.
